Seattle WA (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
OpenHelix today announced it is offering a Virtual Field Guide on NCBI Resources, with a year subscription to over ten self-run, web based, narrated tutorials on NCBI bioinformatics and genomics resources.
The Virtual NBCI Field Guide currently includes tutorials on dbSNP, Entrez Gene, Entrez Overview, GEO, Map Viewer, OMIM, and PubMed. Additional tutorials on BLAST, Entrez Protein, MMDB, and dbGaP will be added over the next three months. Subscribers to the Virtual NCBI Field Guide will have access to any and all of these tutorials and their updates for one year.
All tutorials are an introduction to the resources, explaining features, functionally and use for the beginning to intermediate user. The tutorials also include downloadable PowerPoint slides, handouts, and exercises for use as reference or for use in a classroom setting.
"NCBI provides many powerful and popular resources," explained Scott Lathe, CEO of OpenHelix, "but with NCBI no longer offering onsite seminars, we are attempting to meet the urgent need for this training with a special subscription at a low price."
The Virtual NCBI Field Guide can be purchased for a single user, a lab, a department or for a company or institution. Subscription for one user for one year is only $199, with multiple user pricing as low as $15 per user per year.
